Leo Bamford and Ellie Thompson team up with ‘Two New Mums‘ Amy Voce and Jennie Longdon to chat pregnancy, birth and baby kit in this latest episode of Parental Control.
Virgin Radio DJ Amy Voce and Absolute Radio DJ Jennie Longdon have been co-hosting comedy podcast Two Non Blondes since 2017, before falling pregnant two days apart, around 9 months ago. This incredible coincidence saw the launch of their new spin-off podcast ‘Two New Mums‘ as they tackle everything relating to fertility, pregnancy and kids, navigating the path of parenthood with the help of guest experts.
We welcome Amy and Jennie to Parental Control for this all-girl ep to discuss birth plans, hospital bags, and which baby kit they’re buying ahead of their imminent new arrivals. Favourites include the Cybex PRIAM pushchair and the Snuzpod, as well as wondering if they can make do with dog beds and figuring out exactly what a steriliser is.

In 2017 Amy and fellow radio presenter and great pal Jennie Longdon launched their comedy podcast ‘Two Non Blondes’, which, on discovering both were pregnant and due just two days apart, has evolved into the new podcast ‘Two New Mums’ which also became the official podcast of The Baby Show, the UK’s largest baby and parenting event.
When not broadcasting, you’ll probably find Amy in pigeon pose, as a devoted yogi, having trained to teach, or walking her best friend, Peggy Sue the cavapoo in a forest. Travel is also a massive passion, especially if it involves a road trip and log cabin!
